Chobani: ‘Never Market the Middle’
More than a decade ago, Hamdi Ulukaya, Chobani’s founder and CEO, took out a loan to buy an old food factory. At the time, nobody predicted that he was about to start a Greek yogurt revolution. But he did. Greek yogurt today accounts for more than 50% of all yogurt sold in the U.S. Chobani remains one of the most successful CPG companies in the grocery aisle. It’s privately owned and growing at an unprecedented pace. Peter McGuinness, Chief Demand Officer at Chobani, explains the brand’s success and why it’s not just about yogurt, but about the purpose and authenticity.
